I have spent the last 25 years in sales. Selling everything from travel to motorcycles.
I am currently a Sales Consultant in NE South Dakota. I Sell wireless communications, as well as computers to colleges and universities, hospitals, clinics etc.
I am interested in doing some freelance sales training and motivational speaking. Through a series of life changing happenings, a well pieced together life of experience, not all wonderful. Have taught me to take what I have to the next level, and prepare for the next opportunity.
Check out putting up a display at high traffic trade fairs. Also job fairs are a great way to find sales reps. I am in sales and it seems that is one profession that you only get ahead if you move around.
I would think someone that currently sells outdoor or indoor advertising would be a good parallel for you.
There are also some great online job sites that you could try.
What is it that you sell. I don`t know any business owner that doesn`t want to save money, or run his business more efficiently. Offering the best service....and then always over-deliver!
Once you do get in always ask for referrals. julie633/25/2009 2:44 PM
